I did some more work, and started to consider how this effects Part 2 

As expected, it works well for "Identifying the Resource Associated with 
a Representation" 

However, in general it's not as easy as simply replacing 
"request-target" by "Effective Request URI".

The reason for this is that with the currently proposed definition, 
"Effective Request Target" is undefined for certain requests, such as 
when request-target is "*" or just an authority component.

Should we re-consider this, mapping the request


to the Effective Request URI

(note no trailing slash)?

Best regards, Julian
